    Jirachee drove to Toronto from Montreal? Sounds like his car was destroyed and he walked home.

    GatoDelFuego, shaymin and I had our own mini smocon meet-up today! Gato was in Orlando for some job interviews so we decided to just meet up and hang out. Shaymin lives close by, so why not? This was my first time meeting Gato and second time meeting shaymin. We wanted Stellar to come join us too but he was busy or didn't want to but that was ok.

    We went to the mall and it was kind of a small and abandoned mall so we hit every place a few times. Gato really really wanted me to play Advance Wars: Dual Strike, which wasn't in the used games case, so we talked to the guy and he ran it in the computer and we found out we could get a used copy shipped to my house. Except like the dude was out of printer and was lazy so we decided to come back in an hour while he set up the new printer.

    There were some cool plushes on our way out. Gato wanted to give Cathy a shoutout for creating luvdiscs

    s/o Cathy (open)

    Afterward, shaymin arrived so we all met up to eat (well apparently everyone else already ate so I ate alone and they both drank...)

    So we just chilled in the food court and talked about a lot of Smogon drama and such, fun times with Briyella, Snobalt, and such. And then that kinda transitioned into talking about politics which was also fun.

    I thought The Dutch Plumberjack would get a kick out of this sign:

    After eating and talking for a while we hit the arcade where we took a sunglasses photo but liek, we forgot to do the famous Gato pose so we ended up retaking one later.

    the failure but I still like this one (open)

    [​IMG]


    Gato played this game where you use succ (tion) and blowing to try to keep a ball balanced in an ascending and descending green LED and if you hit the red LED you lose. Anyway he like did really well and got 100 tickets.

    He made it look easy though. Shaymin and I both fucking wiped out in the first 5 seconds though shaymin tried again and got down to the final 5 seconds but alas.

    Shaymin and I then went head to head on this basketball game. There were three hoops, but Gato was being a puss and said he didn't like basketball so we just did 1 on 1.

    At the prize place, the worker who looked like Michael B. Jordan was really nice and let me get a 35 ticket-worth Fun Dip even though I only had like 25 tickets or something. Maybe he felt bad because nobody could get the Jurassic Park game working after we had asked. Got a green fun dip that I thought was blue raspberry but it wasn't so they let me change it out for the red cherry one.

    Gato had like 135 tickets because he won that stupid fucking LED game. He was thinking of getting a ring for his girlfriend but like all the month/birth stones were wrong or something? anyway he got a lot of shit and then we all decided to get matching bracelets

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]


    Not entirely sure why, maybe it was just because the worker was so nice to us, but I decided to tell him that we all knew each other from the internet and we were meeting up for the first time. He asked if we meant from Xbox Live or something, so we said no and explained to him what Smogon was and what we all do there and even how casuals really hate us. He checked it out on his phone and thought it was really cool so I'm glad we shared it with him.

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]


    On the way out, Gato told us that he found Redew at the mall and shaymin and I were both kind of surprised and incredulous. He told us that Redew's mission was in Orlando so he showed up here.

    Turns out it was all a setup to a really shitty meme prank which I guess we should have expected considering it was Gato. But I guess we didn't expect him to be such a shitlord in real life as he was online :pirate:

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]
    the joke is that they have the same name


    We came back to GameStop to see if the printer was fixed and there was a new guy there. Anyway he needed my address and stuff and my email and like he, Gato, and even the guy behind me laughed at my silly email address and suggested I get a new one =(

    it is mmmfruity (open)

    [​IMG]


    Saw a nice Charizard...plaque? Woodcut? Not sure what the word for it is. But I really wanted to get it, because as my Battle Spot friends know, Charizard is my favorite meme. But I was quite low on the cash so I didn't get it. Pretty cool though.

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]


    We went to this store called Anime King (which also had KPop and stuff) and before we went in I warned them that it wasn't actual Japanese stuff, everything in there was a Chinese knockoff. They kinda figured that out on their own too when everything said "Made in China" and did not have the official Pokemon logos. Every time they said that something looked a little weird, I reminded them that everything was a Chinese knockoff, and it became somewhat of a running gag.

    Despite all the fakeness, there were a few items that looked somewhat nice. Like all the badges from Gen 1-6 (I think excluding BW2? not sure honestly). Anyway we pointed out which ones were Smogon badges and then Shaymin and Gato decided to figure out what each badge was in-game and which gym leader gave it to you which I found tedious and boring but they really were into it and liked it for some reason so whatever I guess.

    We headed back to Hot Topic in the latter hours because I really wanted to get this Mimikyu shirt that I had snapchatted to the Battle Spot guys earlier and they all insisted I buy it. They had a promotion for buy one, get one 50% off (because this mall is desolate and going out of business) but still, kind of on a budget so I didn't wanna get another even at half off. I was considering a Weylund Corporation shirt that Gato also wanted to get. There was only one in the Large size so we were kinda deciding who would get it but we ended up both not wanting it because the sleeves were sewed in kind of an off spot which was uncomfortable. I also considered a Gyarados shirt but like I already have 2 Pokemon shirts so I don't really need more.

    I also got this Digimon mystery box thing for like 4 bucks (30% off because of the BOGO thing) and like it was the few pieces of Digimon merchandise that was still being sold in America so why not? Turned out it was Palmon but Gato kept thinking it was Maractus. Pretty cool but I really wanted to get Agumon =(

    Anyway it was about time to wrap up so we were getting ready to part ways. We did this stupid as fuck wristband power thing lol. Gato joked that we should get a marker and mark our hands like in the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh.

    After that we just sat outside and talked as I waited to get picked up. We talked about school and stuff, what our theses are going to be about and other such fun things like that. Then I had realized I hadn't played my Harmonica yet so I took it out and played "I Play Pokemon Go Everyday" because Gato is like the only person still playing Pokemon Go. And on his request I also played fucking Snow Halation. It was bad.

    And then finally around 6:30 I got picked up and went home and then got on my computer and wrote all this up. It was a really fun and great day. Gato and Shaymin were both kinda nervous about meeting each other because they never really talked much to each other on Smogon and weren't really friends much. But I assured them I'd make sure everything was chill and fun and honestly they really got along great, even when I wasn't around. Turns out talking about Smogon drama is an extremely good icebreaker. So all in all we three had a lot of fun! Thanks for reading, I hope you all enjoyed this little story.

    Went to Toronto VGC Regionals and met some Smogoners on Sunday.

    [​IMG]

    Selfie w/ Zygarde Core plush I bought at the merch station. Layell and I arrived at the hotel after lunchtime and met up with blarajan. King UU, who was supposed to be there, texted us last minute saying he couldn't make it because he forgot it was Mother's Day. That made Layell and I the de facto tour guides for everyone else from out of town.

    Taking the subway to downtown Toronto. From left to right: Celestavian (aka Hawkstar), Alberto, blarajan, Nails, Layell (off camera: RODAN). Everyone from out of town was convinced that the International Plaza Hotel was about three miles away from downtown. Layell and I had to explain that that wasn't the case (more like 10-12 miles). Around this time, blara told a story of almost meeting @v at the Boston Worlds (with the almost shooting), until v realized that he couldn't get through security because his backpack was full of weed.

    [​IMG]

    Dining at the Eaton Centre food court. Shortly thereafter, RODAN said good-bye and we met up with Seaco, who wasn't in any of the pics I took, unfortunately. We walked past City Hall and down Queen St. West to Chinatown and Kensington Market before ending the day with dinner and drinks at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Sneaky Dee's.

    It's a sports joke... Cause the Canadiens-Maple Leafs rivalry is one of the greatest in all of sports... You know, like the Yankees-Red Sox (MLB), Ohio State-Michigan (NCAA FB), Xavier-UC (NCAA BB), Duke-North Carolina (NCAA BB), Canadiens-Bruins (NHL)?

    a fun little story

    I'd be lying if I said I knew exactly when Berks and I became friends but I'm really glad we did. Funny, plays LC, always a pleasure to talk to. Really a quality human being. Didn't think I'd actually make such a great friend from Smogon but I thought wrong.

    As any not poor white person would do, Berks got senior pictures and made graduation invitations. Of course I lowkey wanted one, despite the fact I live about 1,800 miles away (my Tennessee to his Utah) so I did what any logical human being would do and slid into the DMs.
